Game description

This game is similar to its predecessor in the Bucket Game List. However, this time, you attach a spoon to a rope and then to the child’s waist. The objective now is to snuff out a candle. Particularly suitable for this game are tea candles. They do not fall over and will minimise the risk of injuries. The kids can play against each other or against the time.


The one who won against all others wins the completion. If they play against time, then the fastest kid wins.
